CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds optioned relief pitcher Todd Coffey to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday to make room for newly acquired outfielder Jason Ellison.
Ellison, who hit .283 in 63 games this season, was claimed Wednesday on waivers from Seattle. He arrived for the Reds' Thursday afternoon game with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 26-year-old Coffey has been hit hard since the All-Star break, and his ERA is 6.04. The right-hander was 2-1 in 48 games with the Reds, and had two earlier stints at Louisville this season.
